What is an intraoral camera?
An intraoral camera is a high-tech dental tool that helps our friendly dentist and dental team better evaluate and understand your dental health and the state of your smile. The intraoral camera is a small, pen-sized wand that we use to view multiple angles inside your mouth. The live images taken with the intraoral camera are then transmitted to and displayed on a big screen right in our treatment room. This allows you, our patient, to view the inside of your mouth and see what we see. The intraoral camera also helps Dr. Nadia Hamouda and her team get a better look at different parts of your smile, including your existing restorations, cracks in your teeth, tooth surfaces, broken or defective fillings, plaque and tartar buildup, gingival (gum) condition, and bleeding. In addition to helping us assess your oral health and the condition of your smile, we can also use the intraoral camera in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to aid in planning certain types of dental treatment.
What are the benefits of intraoral cameras?
The process for capturing images with an intraoral camera is fast and comfortable. These images help you better understand your dental health and the need for treatment. Intraoral images can also be submitted to insurance companies. We welcome you to contact us today at White Pearl Dentistry to learn more about the uses of intraoral cameras.
